Do I Really Have to Praise you Through the Storm Lord...Or Nah?

Even when it seems like the whole world is crumbling down and all God's plans you THOUGHT he had to prosper you and to do His will seem to crumble down... Just remember HE IS NOT SURPRISED! If you are abiding in him and walking in his love he has you covered ! His ways are higher than our ways and his thoughts are FAR BEYOND ANYTHING WE CAN THINK OR IMAGINE (Isaiah 55-8-9) God's road is the one less traveled on, even though you ASSUMED you knew exactly where he was taking you.
The Lord WILL complete the Good work He has called you to do! "The Lord [will do] just as he said he would"- 1 Samuel 28:17 .
Sometimes in life, especially in this ‘picture perfect filter’ generation  you only want to share the highs and not the lows. But that's how our society is, especially on social media, we only show the highlights ! But in weakness He makes us strong ! He gets the greatest glory out of us through test and trails! "...whenever trouble comes your way, let it be an opportunity for joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow." - James 1:2-3 .
We need more Christians to share and rejoice and be raw and transparent in our weaknesses and our lows because that's when we as a body of Christ can intercede in prayer for others going through the same trail. It also gives non Christians the opportunity to see that God is El Roi.. The God who sees Me [us] (Genesis 22).
God knows. He sees. He’s here.  He is the Alpha and Omega! The who Was , Who Is, and Who Is to Come !
So join me as I lay down everything at his throne like the 24 elders mentioned in Revelation 4:11 and rejoice:
"You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created everything, and it is for your pleasure that they exist and were created."

I love you,

Stacie Cherill :)
